Fridays are "Foodie Fridays" here at Living in the Light! If you're new here (especially if you're visiting from the A to Z Challenge)--welcome!! I'm so happy you're here. Check out my "About Me" page HERE, some of my favorite posts on marriage HERE, and my two most popular posts HERE and HERE.
You might have noticed a trend with my posts. I like to talk about God, a lot, and I like to talk about marriage. But that's not all I write about. I'm also passionate about food. And when trying to come up with an "E" word for the first Friday of the A to Z Challenge, the most logical choice was Eggs!
I love eggs. They're among the most versatile foods, they're cheap, they taste good, and they're a great source of protein and other nutrients.
Just a few of my favorite ways to cook eggs:
-Fried (in coconut oil, they're SO good!)
-In quiche (check out Elsie's instructions HERE)
-Scrambled with veggies and cheese
-"Eggs in a nest" (fried in a slice of bread with a hole cut in the middle)
-In egg bakes (go HERE for a recipe!)
One way I've never learned how to cook eggs was poached. As a kid, my mom would occasionally make poached eggs on English muffins with homemade Hollandaise sauce. I never liked how the English muffin would get mushy, and how thick the sauce was. No offense, Mom, if you're reading this. :) My mother is an AMAZING cook--I just never liked Eggs Benedict! :)
However, I have always liked hard boiled eggs (never tried soft boiled). I have fond memories of coloring eggs at Eastertime with my parents and siblings. I always felt bad destroying the pretty shells, but it was worth it to dip the egg in salt and pepper and eat it!
As a child, my favorite way to eat eggs alternated between fried (using toast to mop up all the yolk) and scrambled. My mom always beat the eggs with some Dijon mustard, tarragon leaves, salt, pepper, and a little milk. And she stirred them constantly while they cooked, so they were soft, tender, and delicious, not dry or tough, like scrambled eggs can be.
What about you? Do you like eggs? What's your favorite way to cook and eat them? Are there any other "E" foods you like?
